Have been hard at work on this month’s knit-a-long. Today I finished the charted color-work. It is lovely.

The yarn is easy to work with and soft. The halo softens the stitches and gives a different effect to the colorwork compared to plain wool without a halo. Here is a photo to show you the “halo”:

Now it is a straight knit to the top; although the decreases are a little different than the usual decrease I do at the top of the hat. Am looking forward to this as it uses centered double decreases evenly spaced around. Will post pic when done!
This is a sweet hat which would be a thoughtful gift for anyone, but especially as a chemocap because it is washable and so soft.

Take care, and knit/crochet/spin/weave with confidence and attitude!xox m.e.
